When I start my windows ME computer I get a blue screen with a message that is "While initializing device SAVRT" " Windows protection error. You need to restart your computer. System failed."

When I restart my computer it starts with a black and white screen that gives me choices to start in safe mode and normal. The only choice that does anything is safe mode. When I click on safe mode the 'help' window comes up.

I found in the archives that I should delete the Symantec Norton program. When I try to delete the norton program I get a message that says I have to do this task in 'normal' mode -

I've also tried to delete the norton in the startup list however it won't do that either.
